Fodor's Review

This tented camp, minimalist but with surprising luxury touches, gives you the total bush experience without some of the bells and whistles of more upscale camps and at half the price. Designed to reflect Hemingway's Africa, it sits in a tamboti grove overlooking a dry riverbed. You'll feel very close to the bush (but quite safe and secure) in your large, comfortable tent with its leather couch and open-air bathroom with concrete bath, double shower, and separate toilet.

Spot game as you lounge on the swimming pool deck, or browse in the temperature-controlled wine cellar. Tea or coffee is served in your tent at dawn, and meals are served in a big safari tent around a long wooden table, where you can swap animal war stories with your fellow guests in an intimate, relaxed atmosphere. Children under 12 are not allowed.
